LAX RELEASES DRAFT RFP FOR CONSOLIDATED RENTAL CAR FACILITY
(Los Angeles, California – November 3, 2017) Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) released the draft Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Consolidated Rental Car facility (ConRAC) to four pre-qualified teams today. This is the second Public Private Partnership (P3) RFP that LAWA has released for the $5.5 billion Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The ConRAC will house 23 rental car companies in one facility that is connected to the terminals by an Automated People Mover (APM). This will reduce traffic congestion by eliminating the need for rental car shuttles to access the terminal loop at LAX.
“The release of the Consolidated Rental Car draft RFP marks an important milestone in our effort toward building this facility.” said Jake Adams, Deputy Program Executive. “We are excited to take the next step toward improving the guest experience for rental car customers accessing the terminals.”
The primary components of the LAMP project include the APM, the ConRAC and Intermodal Transportation Facilities (ITF). Together, these components will provide a convenient and reliable way for guests to access the terminals at LAX.
P3s are being pursued to build large infrastructure projects across the country because they allow private sector partner(s) to invest in public infrastructure in exchange for access to revenue or other benefits that infrastructure will produce. The LAMP project has two components that will utilize the P3 model, the Automated People Mover and the ConRAC. Both components are using the Design Build Finance Operate Maintain (DBFOM) P3 model.
Once the RFP process is complete the winning team will enter into a 29-year contract with LAWA. The developer will have four years to complete the design and construction and 25 years to operate the ConRAC. Funding for the project will come partially from the developer, with LAWA making milestone payments during design and construction, and availability payments during the operations period.
The final RFP is expected to be released in April 2018.
The four prequalified teams are comprised of the following:
ConRAC Partners: Meridiam ConRAC LLC, Skanska Infrastructure Development Inc., McCarthy Building Companies Inc., Skanska USA Building Inc., HKS Architects Inc., Honeywell International Inc., Fuel Facility Management Inc.
LA Gateway Partners: Fengate Capital Management Ltd., PCL Investments, MVI Finance LLC, PCL Construction Services, Pierce Goodwin Alexander & Linville Inc., AC Martin Partners Inc., Johnson Controls Inc., MVI Holdings LLC
